Adderall Mood Swings Causes and Reviews


Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness. People who have it go through unusual mood changes. They go from very happy, "up," and active to very sad and hopeless, "down," and inactive, and then back again. They often have normal moods in between. The up feeling is called mania. The down feeling is depression.

The causes of bipolar disorder aren't always clear. It runs in families. Abnormal brain structure and function may also play a role.

Bipolar disorder often starts in a person's late teen or early adult years. But children and adults can have bipolar disorder too. The illness usually lasts a lifetime.

If you think you may have it, tell your health care provider. A medical checkup can rule out other illnesses that might cause your mood changes.

If not treated, bipolar disorder can lead to damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and even suicide. However, there are effective treatments to control symptoms: medicine and talk therapy. A combination usually works best.

Adderall Mood Swings Reviews

Wed, 15 Jun 2011
I am normally, at least I'd like to remember myself as a calm caring person. Anyway, I've been on Adderall for a little over a year now. Though, there are circumstances in my life that may have caused me to be upset, I have become very angry, Mood Swings, crying spells, that last at least a half hour...scream crying, the dreaded "ugly" cry and have even wanted to hurt myself. I have scratched myself down my face, hit myself in the face, basically kicked my own butt. I know these are not "normal" behaviors, but they feel "okay" to me "in the moment". I've wanted to kill myself, but have three young kids and can sometimes maintain some rational...sometimes. I never think of hurting them or anyone else, at least physically, but do often wish to do it to myself. I have been paranoid, thinking something is happening, when it isn't, ie; my husband cheating, or meeting up with someone, even though I know his wereabouts, these feelings feel very real to me. They have become pervasive and have destroyed my relationship. I feel totally depressed, isolated, also, I did miss a couple days this past week-end, took again on Tuesday, but was still feeling "crazy", today, though some paranoia still lingers, I am feeling a little better. I just wonder if there is an actual corralation with Adderall and anger.
